Was that before or after Bill called Mitt a liar?
Don't think Bill has much room to call anyone a liar.

But he did say Bain Capital's record was "sterling".

And he did say at an Ohio rally this month (supposedly supporting Obama) that the President has not fixed the economy, nor achieved any form of recovery and validated Mitt Romney's words from the most recent debate when he said this:

"Governor Romney's argument is...it's not fixed, so fire him and put me in. It is true, we're not fixed. When President Obama looked into the eyes of that man who said at the debate, I had so much hope four years ago, and I don't now...I thought he was gonna cry. Because he knows that it's not fixed."

Seems Bill might be having some mixed feelings.

Exactly.
It's so obvious Obama is lying about Libya, I'm really surprised anyone pretends to believe him.
This has to embarrass even the idiot OWSers here.

You sound like those that talked people into voting for Bush. Haven't learned anything yet?

Oh yea, why is it that I see Clinton campaigning all over and where is Bush? Romney doesn't want anyone to know how his policies will end up

You're supposed to kill the horse first.

Romney left a 1.9 Billion deficit and rank 47th in jobs in his one failed term as Govenor.
Romney presided over a series of spending cuts and increases in fees that eliminated an up to $1.5 billion deficit.

According to PolitiFact:
If a state is faring better than others through the recession, there is less room to go back up, and so the percentage gains would be smaller.

We found little evidence to support the claim that Romney is responsible for those jobs numbers. Economists told us that it's a stretch to blame or credit Romney or any governor for job numbers.

I can still remember President Clinton staring right at me and America saying that. Of course I knew he was lying, just as I know Obama's myriad lies.
People died
Obama lied
While the nation was focused on Bill Clinton's charges of sexual harrassment, lying under oath to a Grand Jury, deciphering the meaning of the word "is" and whether or not he did or did not have sex with that woman in the Oval Office, the plot for 9/11 was in full swing during the entire four years of his second term.

It has been a long standing tradition here for the former presidents to not become involved in presidential matters.

That tradition got thrown under the bus beginning with Jimmy Carter. Since, there has not been a Democrat former president that has not involved themselves in presidential politics. Only Republicans still hold to that time-honored tradition.

If Bill Clinton thinks he knows so much about being president, then why doesn't he just run again?

After Obama gets tossed out, look for him to openly join the muslim terrorists at war with the United States.
He should be careful not to cross the threshold that defines treason. After the way the Democrats openly committed treason during the Cold War, there's a lot of people here that are ready to set some kind of example so it will be a very, very long time before anyone is tempted to commit treason that was so common among Democrats.

That is quite the thought. Stay up all night to think of that. Maybe you should go to be and get some sleep and you MIGHT come up with something alittle better than that. We are voting on our President and it doesn't seem that you have anything real substance to your aguement. Maybe tomorrow.

Obama should have gotten Newt Gingrich to stump for him if he really wanted us to consider the deficit reduction under Clinton's presidency since it was a republican congress who led the way. Clinton was just smart enough to go along with them.

But you know Democrats love to take credit for nothing they've done themselves. They're such characters....

They only had to pull Clinton back into the spotlight out of sheer desperation.

Presidential candidates rarely ask or even want support from former presidents.

Clinton isn't running again, after all. So are we supposed to think he is and vote for Obama instead?

Massachuset was 1.9 billion dollars in the red when Romney left office and he hid this little detail from the incoming Govenor during the transition period.

Give this some thought and tell us what your answer is in the morning.

Who told Susan Rice what to say all over the television networks and at the UN?
Obviously, it wasn't Obama.
So, who told her what to say?

Obama is an empty chair. He's not in charge of anything. The person who told Susan Rice what to say at the UN and all over television is the real president.
Who is it?
